414 Louisa Street - Key West - A Christmas Wish Come True

Santa arrived in Key West a couple of days early this year. Good guys and gals may find the new listing at 414 Louisa Street in Key West their Christmas Wish come true.  This Charming Conch Cottage is a totally renovated home with vaulted ceiling in the living area, two bedrooms, two baths, off street parking, a pool, located near Duval Street, capable of being used as a legal vacation rental, and priced at just $850,000.  The house has 948 sq ft of living space on one level plus an easily accessible attic where you can stash the kids. This home was just listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work, but this is not my listing. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Unique 2/2 Conch Cottage in a very desirable location with both pool and off street parking. Renovated in 2009 and meticulously maintained since. Lots of special features including custom Jacuzzi tub in master, cove lighting, open/beamed ceiling and LED lighting feature in the pool. Hot and Cold outdoor shower for the pool guests. Special home that must be seen to be appreciated."
I looked in my old shoe  box and found a photo of 414 Louisa Street dated 1965.  Compare the spartan way it looked back then to the new and improved way it looks in 2013.   

 The listing Realtor told me the current owners completely renovated the property by replacing the piers, adding all new electric and plumbing throughout the house. The bedrooms and bathrooms were redesigned and fitted with all new bath fixtures, tiles, etc.  Take a look at photos that show this house from the front door to the pool in the back. And then CLICK HERE to view many more photos.

The pocket doors retract and reveal the spa-like master bath with Jacuzzi tub and designer fixtures.  There's a TV mounted on the wall so the two of you can enjoy your favorite programs.
French doors at the rear open to the covered rear patio and swimming pool. There's an outdoor shower around the corner as well.
I think 414 Louisa Street could make an excellent vacation rental. It is located on a very quite one-way street just one half block away from Duval Street. It is within easy walking distance to South Beach, the Southernmost Point, the Hemingway House, and the historic lighthouse, and a short walk to Ft. Zach Taylor State Park and Beach.
414 Louisa Street is offered at $850,000CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls data sheet.  But better than looking a descriptions and photos online, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 or send me an email at to set up a private showing of this Key West cottage that could be the answer to your Christmas wish list.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
